Delirious screech, the old fashioned smell of nicotine hits me out the blue, the pleasant brain shiver frontal. A car crumples like an accordion in pixelised blur. All occupants dead it would seem. Uploaded without permission of their will-less bodies.

He has found situationist comfort in rolling dice to determine where the liquids are bought. He has assumed the roll of problem drinker for now and the meanwhile of screen cynosure. This cigarette is good and inhabits like godpuss on a victim in sociopathic lay-by. He realises that the victim is probably a woman and downloads torn hooker clothes for her to wear. He is the needle in her arm and sucks in order to fire up libidinal hits and highs. Gratification tastes of grit and human soil behind a DFS sofa. It wasn't that he couldn't feel, and so he went downstairs to get something from Sarah.

Sarah was on the worn but presentable bank holiday couch painting her toenails, tufts of cotton wool tween her little piggies. She wore less of clothes, split ends and her crooked gorgeous mouth in concentration. She painted in fine details on her hard footbits - one of which was onyxistic, I shit you not - portions of a Corot masterpiece of melancholy and twisted tree-muscle. Sarah had several co-occurrent thoughts running through her head:

Thought one: Should she attend Beachwood Club in SL, after all Viktor Galli would be spinning his arse off as usual.

Thought two: Too much dark grey on the little toe.

Thought three: The sleaze of her life was descending.

I guess a number 4 domestic dialogue happened, but I logged out at this point and described myself into an episode of CSI.

Good words. And I would likely concur with the narrator's final decision.

Is discharge Dada? No, it is not. Influenced by and with a similar attitude to, but not Dada..

Is discharge Fluxus? No, it is not. Influenced by and with a similar attitude to, but not Fluxus.

Is discharge art for intellectuals? No, discharge is for anyone and everyone who appreciates creativity in all its myriad forms. Be it static visual, audio or moving image; the written word or the deconstructed, non-linear form. The spoken word and noise.

All creativity is the springboard for discharge. It highjack’s a multitude of genres and disciplines and transposes them onto the internet. discharge is electronically transmitted art, be it via blog, myspace or whatever format possible, it can also be produced and seen in classic formats.

The discharge Chapbook. The discharge Building by Parts book. discharge has no rules. All contributors to discharge are responsible adults. discharge has no leaders although it has an elected body of rotating editors who oversee rather than dictate the flow of the group.

The aim of discharge is to profile creative people and to do away with the pretension of the art world. Everyday people creating art everyday to an exceptional quality.

Art by barrow boys and girls. discharge is international.
